A wise old man once told me just go get the one you really want even it is the most expensive. Ultimately, you will still want to buy them and in return becoming more expensive owing other less desired one.

 

Welcome to Head-Fi, sorry for your pocket. Lol, just kiddin.

I am interested to find a CAL! too I heard it's very sweet sounding.

Never get to try CAL! But it sounds like it has a fun sound signature xD

Smart choice. Starting from number 3, I don't really like it. SRH-840 vs HFI-780, I will for HFI-780 if I want more bass. SRH-840 for smoother overall sound(forward mids too).

so billson the shures would have better vocals right because of the mid range ...how is the bass on the shure do the 780 have way more bass or not really

1. Shure SRH 840


2. Ultrasone HiFi 780

Opps...SORRY! My wrong...Shure SRH-840 has more bass. HFI-780 are tighter. Go for the Shure SRH-840.

I apologize for my mistake smily_headphones1.gif

its okay sorry i keep asking questions i've been reading a lot on these head phones and just wanted to get to the bottom line i see people bashing on each other between these head sets its like never ending maybe that's why i keep asking a million questions hopefully this thread will help another newbie like me with a entry level or should i say a $200 dollar limit

 

from what i read i think the shures have a lil more edge more people say that they are better than the 780. but the 780 aren't that bad also

 

the shures have better vocals right with a lil bass and the 780 have a lil more bass but not ask much vocals

 

 

any other opinions are welcome

By the way, what source are you gonna pair those canes with? I would recommend using a small amp like E6 to significantly reduce the sibilance on some source. I was using my iPod Nano 3rd during the audition & no sibilance detected. iPhone 4 & 4S shouldn't be a problem too. smily_headphones1.gif

$27.99. FiiO E6. It's good enough to drive SRH-840 from what I heard. Pairing with one will reduce sibilance on some source. I am however not sure about if your source will produce any sibilance on the SRH-840. You can try. Do note when new headphones are just unboxed might causes some sibilance. Give it some burn in. 4-8hours per day. Do it for a week, everyday at 50% of max volume is good enough smily_headphones1.gif

Not much for collection(XBA-4) but has auditioned plenty of headphone at Stereo! Very nice customer service they have biggrin.gif

Planing for a major upgrade for home audio set-up under USD700/SGD850 for 2 headphones(open & closed both over-ear) + one amp. Just sometime later not so soon but seeking for recommendation now xD

I see you have plenty of collection at your signature xD
